Daisy the VW Classic Camper
Daisy is a 1978, Classic VW Camper- your accommodation and transport all in one. Renovated this year to an extremely high standard, she offers you a trip down memory lane but with all the modern comforts (integrated gas hob, electricity enabled, fridge, electric heater, sink with water pump). Daisy’s Westfalia elevating roof gives plenty of standing space, as well as a double bed space in roof & a small double “downstairs”. There’s a definite spark in her with her total rebuild engine, gear box & braking system!
So many beaches to surf on, so many coves to relax in, so many cream teas to sample – but where do you start?
Stay in one place but miss the delights of others? Or what about hiring our Daisy and set your own itinerary, whether it be action packed or more sedately paced, and sample more of the amazing places on offer.
A Daisy adventure is about creating memories with the important people in your life, about taking time to appreciate what’s around and about escaping your everyday life!
Our many years of camping and “campervanning” have helped us in the setting up and kitting out of our girl – you need to live the life to know the life! It’s these little touches and attention to detail (Daisy is particularly partial to her matching bunting and tea towels) which make the Daisy experience so special! We offer a bespoke, personalised service, with Daisy prepared in mind for the specific guests at that particular time.
Choose whether to collect Daisy from us, on the Cornwall/Devon border (where your car will be kept secure and safe) or meet her at either Newquay or Exeter airports if you decide to fly south to us. Alternatively, we can arrange for Daisy to meet you at a train/coach station of your choice within 50 miles from Launceston, Cornwall – planes, trains ……then camper vans! (There may be an extra charge for some of these collection services so please check with us).
On meeting Daisy, we will give you an in-depth guided tour of her on board facilities as well as taking you for a short spin in her to help familiarise you with her driving prowess (after all, she’s a classic vehicle and these extra driving tips will really help your transition from modern to classic driving).
There is a detailed manual on board to assist with life in Daisy and we will be contactable at all times throughout your holiday in Daisy in case you need any further help or advice.
Once you’ve booked your date with Daisy, if you would like any advice with itineraries, suggestions, we are more than happy to assist as we’ve had plenty of experience on this front ourselves
